The multi-millionaire JP MC MANUS is sponsor of the annual Irish cup event, usually held in Co Limerick every Year. The Limerick coursing Club have recently lost their usual venue at the Limerick race track for next year and we now have an opportunity to lobby the sponsors. If sponsorship is pulled in this case it will be a serious blow to the Irish coursing club and help to end this blood sport once and for all.

Live Hare Coursing: Sponsored by JP McManus
Live Hare Coursing: Sponsored by JP McManus

Please contact JP Mc MANUS by phone, letter or email. Ask him to stop sponsoring sports that involve animal suffering and abuse. We know this man donates a lot of money to deserving causes but publicity is scarce (almost non-existent) regarding his support for LIVE HARE COURSING.

During Hare Coursing, hares are chased, terrorised, netted, ear-tagged, struck and mauled, as well as being pinned down by two trained Greyhounds, many die from their internal injuries. Greyhounds also sustain injuries during the chase.

Without sponsorship, hare coursing could not continue, and JP McManus is the biggest sponsor of all.

Email correspondence for attention of JP MC MANUS. Just a sentence will suffice if you wish...simply asking him to STOP pumping money into this horrific blood sport.

Emails (for attention of JP McManus) to:

Here is a brief film showing exactly what happens in hare coursing as practiced in Ireland:

• The Irish Coursing Club announced that tests from the Irish Greyhound Laboratory revealed that the winner tested positive for the substances, ephedrine and phenypropanolamine while competing at the Irish Cup meeting on February 26.
• John Browne trainer said ‘ the dog came off lame after his second-round run in the puppy stake at the Corn na Féile. The injury put them back some weeks and Clonmel came too soon for them.’

JP MC MANUS should condemn animal abuse not sponsor it!

Hare coursing is a criminal offence. Giving money to those who organise cruel animal baiting events is not "philanthropy".
